Apple Releasing Toy Story Watch Faces for Apple Watch

Toy Story, Toy Story 2

Posted by Phileas • June 5, 2017

At Apple’s annual developer conference, WWDC 2017, Apple has announced that Woody, Jessie, and Buzz will be making an appearance on the Apple Watch as all-new, animated Toy Story watch faces.

The trio from the franchise has specially-created animation sequences specially created for the wearable’s operating system, with a different animation playing every time you raise the watch. In announcing to 5,000 developers in San Jose, Apple’s VP of Technology, Kevin Lynch, described the watch faces as “a ton of fun”, saying that the three characters will add “a lot of hijinks in there” to the popular smartwatch.

Apple has had a long-standing association with Pixar since the studio’s formation. Besides Steve Jobs being a pivotal & monumental part to the history of both companies, Pixar franchises frequently play cameos in Apple’s conferences and product announcements, extending back all the way to 2000 with Toy Story 2 and the introduction of Mac OS X.

The watch faces are part of watchOS 4, which will be released to all Apple Watch owners this summer; a public beta is expected to be released in a couple of months. Follow us on Twitter to be kept in the know when these insanely cool watch faces are available!

Welcome to the new Upcoming Pixar!

Pixar Planet, Upcoming Pixar

Posted by Phileas • March 3, 2015

ipadOn a Spring day on November 2004, a passionate Pixar fan, Thomas Huxley (bawpcwpn), made his first post on his recently created Pixar blogspot.com account, in anticipation for the release of Cars that next year. Since then, Upcoming Pixar has covered seven feature films from that magical animation studio in Emeryville, and for ten years, it has been informing, entertained and engaged with Pixar fans across the world. Upcoming Pixar has grown to become the oldest, and one of the leading Pixar blogs on the web, with more than 3,000 articles and more than 1 million visitors each year.

So, on its tenth anniversary, I’m extremely proud, on behalf of Simoa and the Upcoming Pixar team, to unveil the new Upcoming Pixar. As you can notice, the blog has an all-new design! This is the first revamp of the site ever since the blog merged with the Pixar Planet Network in 2007.

We’ve been working on the new website design for more than two years! It goes beyond just a new logo (which we’ve revealed in 2013 on our Twitter and Facebook branding!), or a cleaner design. We’ve made the site much more responsive and accessible so you can engage with our content far easier than ever before.

One of the biggest points about the redesign is that you can catch up with Upcoming Pixar anytime, anywhere. We’ve made the site far easier to access and read on your smartphone or tablet, no matter what device you own. We’ve also included improvements to viewing media on the site and with accessing your favourite categories.

With Inside Out just less than three months today, it couldn’t have been a better time to bring you the redesign! This is just the start of the exciting things we have for you at Upcoming Pixar and across the Pixar Planet Network. Keep an eye out for some Inside Out coverage goodies!

Thank you very much for reading Upcoming Pixar, and we hope you like the new site!

— Gabe (Phileas)
COO, Pixar Planet
